Do the Hali's show at oyster before arw?  26lber caught in 30fow off candlestick recently...

Yup. They usually migrate to oyster and candlestick area before making their loop to ARW. April- MAY is a good time. I think last year mid May they we're hitting hard at ARW. I like hitting oyster early cause there are some whompers around that time.
Candlestick has a sketchy state park, but I hear it's cleaning up.  Oyster point, from the satellite, seems to have a kayak access launch off the jetty or parking lot.

Where do you launch at Oyster and Candlestick?

There's a boat launch at Oyster Point, or if you dare, you can launch off the windsurfer stairs.  For Candlestick, there's an old post about fishing the Brisbane Tubes.  There are beaches/rocks you can get to on the northside of Brisbane industrial area.  Personal preference, but I wouldn't park along Candlestick Parkway or launch from the State Park.  There are rocks you have to scramble over and/or a two or three foot drop to get to the water.  Plus, even during daylight, there's a high potential for your vehicle to get boosted... and it's crazy shallow around with mud flats around Candlestick point.

I guess I would because they are migratory fish...but I do not think all come and go into the ocean...depends on the look of the fish...certainly not the belly meat...Oyster point yes....candlestick?  I'll do some hali homework on resident hali.

If there is one spot that harbor worms it is going to be in the belly spot. I agree with Eddie, i think the majority of halibut are migratory fish that enter the bay in the spring and leave after the summer. However, i'm sure there are resident fish that live in the bay. I'll start hitting up the halibut grounds when the weather starts to stabilize out and the temp picks up.

I have a few honey holes where I know they like to hang and it is time to send eviction notices. Can't wait to get this going!

Hey Anglers,

I've been thinking of putting this together for awhile now. I want to organize my first Fish and Learn.
The purpose of the Fish and Learn is to provide an avenue for new or seasoned kayak fishing
Anglers to get together to FISH and LEARN. I have learned many hard lessons as a season angler and I feel that it is time to pass this knowledge along.Come Fish, Come Chill, Come Learn.

Learn about:

Bait Choices for California Halibut
Best locations in the bay and ocean to target Halibut
Targeting tides
How to properly net/gaff halibut
Learn how halibut migrations around the bay.
Preparing your catch.

Basic Kayak Fishing Tips:
Dressing for immersion
Emergency plans
The Importance of PFD and fishing buddies

The Fish and Learn is TBD for now. Depending on the interest. FYI: April - May is a good time to hit the halibut around oyster point. The waters in the south bay tends to warm up first and would be a good time to hammer them out. So if the Fish and Learn is a go it will be around this time.

If you are interested, leave a message here or comment on my blog:
http://thelostanchovy.com/oyster-point-halibut-fish-learn-2018/

Update: It seems like there is enough interest to move forward with this event. Looking at the tide charts and moon phases.
It looks like Saturday May 12, 2018 is the best date. I will set up a small event registry in the events section of TLA for those that wish to participate.

It's alright, we'll have plenty of staff for that event from YAB.  We don't get a whole lot of NCKAers at our bass-centric events.

How are you planning on passing along all that great information ? OTW ? We could all raft up. That seemed to (almost) work for Racin Rob at the HMB PIF.  Great video but couldn't find it - if someone knows where, post it up

Honestly, I wasn't intending this to impact the HOW event. I was anticipating 15-25 people attending. Honestly this is more of a hook up and learn than an official tournament like ARW last year. I'm trying to keep it more informal and just let people fish, learn and bbq/pot luck after. I would just consider this more if a hook up than a formal event like we did last year.

It looks like enough people have expressed interest.

But I just ran across this and would love to join in as well!

From Sacramento and would gladly make the trip.
